Two ever-popular flavours - peanut butter and chocolate - combine in this sweet.

  • Portion size 20 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped peanut
  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 oz bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 6 oz semisweet chocolate chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable shortening
  • 20 peanut halves

Method

In large bowl, stir together icing sugar, chopped peanuts, peanut butter, cream and vanilla. Roll by tablespoonfuls (15mL) into balls; place on waxed paper-lined rimmed baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until firm.

Meanwhile, in bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt chocolate with shortening, stirring occasionally. Let cool slightly. Using 2 forks, dip each ball into chocolate mixture to coat, letting excess drip off; return to paper-lines sheet. Top each with peanut half. Refrigerate until hardened. (Make ahead: Refrigerate in layers separated by waxed paper in air-tight container for up to 2 weeks.)
